QuickDiff is a text diffing class for PHP. It might not be very accurate but it's very easy to use and have two modes - finding changes by line or inline (within one line). It also comes with built-in HTML generation although you need to style it yourself with CSS.
It has no dependencies and works out of the box in PHP 5.2 and up - simply include it and you're ready to go.
Unless you're using Laravel QuickDiff is just a single file (
require_once 'quickdiff.php'; echo QuickDiff::FullHtmlWrapped("line1\nline2", "line1\nKABOOM\nline2"); //=> <pre class="qdiff">...</pre> echo QuickDiff::FullHtmlWrapped("\bin\xA\ry\0u\tput", "line1\nKABOOM\nline2"); //=> <p class="qdiff bin">Diff is unavailable for binary data.</p> echo QuickDiff::InlineHTML("this plus that", "plus that and this"); //=> <span class="add">this<i>·</i></span>...
php artisan bundle:install quickdiff

bundle.php into your
application/bundles.php and use
LaraQDiff class instead of
QuickDiff - it will take into count options that you can configure in the bundle's
This automatic configuration is the only difference between standalone
